10 day count down begins!!!

Monday, December 16, 2013

Day 10...reason for craziness! For those that are not prepared..this is the redline!

You are destined to become either a Walmart shopper or an online buyer!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

your thoughts & dreams will be rife with presents & gift wrapping & bows that tangle up!

All thoughts of "what should I get"..will now be..why didn't I get that when I could!!!!

& indeed the countdown is on....DAY 10 almost in the tank..Day 9 looms on the horizon!

How's that for a horrible scene?? I pray that none of us are under the gun like that!

Supposedly the idea is to give from the heart to show love..not to have the right price tag or the perfect gift! Is there such a thing?? Yes I believe there is..but it is not for sale..

A walk holding your daughters hand as she talks about her dreams.

An afternoon spent shooting baskets with your son as he brags about his abilities..& is right!

A quiet evening reading a story together as a family...or stirring up cocoa in the kitchen with all around the table waiting with their cups in hand.

A stroll with your pup..new or old..they always love a walk with you.


Getting a theme here??
Your time.
.that is the greatest gift anyone can give or receive. That is the stuff memories are made of..& no value has yet been set on time. It is a limitless gift that can be freely given & received but never forgotten.

So as we dash towards some magickal date..let's take time to remember it is supposed to be about love & kindness & thoughts of good times shared.

Forget the WALMART Christmas & instead focus on the FAMILY CHRISTMAS.

    What a great blog! What I keep thinking is about all those after Christmas catalogues I will be getting! emoticon When they start coming in, I always think, Why didn't I wait till after Christmas!" emoticon

    Stores after Christmas can be a bit sad. emoticon Lots of things are in disarray and the holiday area looks positively bleak. I am pretty disciplined now about NEVER buying holiday decorations before Christmas. emoticon These are definitely cheaper after the holiday!

    Very nice Katie, Christmas has become so commercialized, it's time to get back to the true meaning of Christmas!
